That is true.  Miller uses his own private methods for tracking, for  
better or worse.  But this patch in question was unanswered for over  
a year, so it seems appropriate to close it for now.  It can always  
be reopened.

Usability of the patch tracker.  If its just a giant collection of  
patches, some abandoned, some useful, etc. then it becomes a lot of  
work to wade thru.  The idea is to keep it a manageable list of  
active patches.
